Jaime Lee Kirchner was born, in Germany and grew up in Clarksville, TN. Aspiring toward a career in acting, Kirchner began embarking upon auditions while still in high school, getting as far as a callback for a part in the Broadway production of "Rent" in 1998. She then enrolled in New York University's Tisch School of the Arts before landing her first professional performing gig: a background dancer role in the music video for Beyoncé's "Work It Out" from the Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002) soundtrack. From there, Kirchner leapt to acting jobs proper, her first of which being, appropriately, the role she had auditioned for seven years prior: Mimi Marquez in the 2005 international tour of "Rent." Around the same time, Kirchner also began finding her footing on the screen, landing a recurring role on the short-lived series "Just Legal" (The WB 2005), as well as a number of one-off parts, including a minor role in the romantic comedy "Definitely Maybe" (2008). Kirchner's accrued somewhat more successful television projects as time carried on, first the hospital drama "Mercy" (NBC 2009-2010), on which she played Nurse Sonia Jimenez, and then the crime drama "The Mob Doctor" (Fox 2012-13). In 2016, Kirchner joined the cast of the new drama series "Bull" (CBS 2016-), following the experiences of a psychiatrist who serves as a legal trial consultant. On the series, Kirchner played Danny James, a former FBI agent who turned to work as an investigator for the central trial consultant team.
